Another New Year's Eve is upon us, a time to reflect on all that has happened in the previous year and to wonder about events yet to come in 2006. New Year's Eve is celebrated in so many ways around the world, it is truly a global time of reflection and anticipation. Here at Comfortstand, we decided to celebrate the changing of the year by asking artists from all over the world to take the song most associated in people's minds with New Years Eve (the old Scottish song 'Auld Lang Syne'), and to provide their interpretations of the tune.
This compilation contains the results of that invitation, reflecting both the world's spent energy and vibe of 2005 and it's pent-up hopes and dreams for 2006.. 25 artists have provided us with songs ranging from straight forward cover versions of the tune, to artistic representations of the concept of Auld Lang Syne and the New Year event, based on the artist's own vision and experiences.
Our New Year's Eve wish for 2006 is that as you play this compilation, you will take the time to reflect on the world that we live in, and what your role is in that world. As you ponder these things,we hope that you will make the decision to join us in living well, taking care of others as well as yourself, and enjoying all of the happiness that is there for the taking in 2006.
